After a storm brought icy waves crashing on to in St Joseph North Pier jutting out into Lake Michigan, the winter tempest left the lighthouse with a hauntingly beautiful ice encasement.

The video was captured by St Joe photographer Joshua Nowicki who captured the images December 15, 2016. Nowicki's stunning images of Lake Michigan regularly go viral, and this video is no exception.

St Joseph's lighthouse recently underwent an extensive renovation that allowed a rare look insight the historic structure.

The lighthouse scene was also captured by the Great Lakes Drone Company
